Pictures Of The Kuragala Islam Holy Site Demolition

“It has also been bought to our notice that a stone inscription dating back to Hijra 300 (over 1200 years old) been Destroyed. Also the Bodu Bala Sena has threatened to bring a statue on the 18 th of this month from Colombo in a vehicle parade and place it there.  I would be much thankful to you, if you would give priority to this matter in your busy schedule and intervene to stop causing any further damage to this Holy place of worship.” Azath Salley, the General Secretary of the National Unity Alliance wrote to President.

Azath Salley also wrote to diplomats today. He wrote; “I would be much thankful to you, if you would kindly use your good office with the President of Sri Lanka and bring this matter to his notice on an urgent basis, and help the Muslims of this country to safeguard their historical religious site.”

His. Excellency Mahinda Rajapakse

President of the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka

Presidential Secretariat

Colombo.                                                                                                                              16th May 2013

Your Excellency,

Herewith I am enclosing a copy of my previous letter dated 26th,April 2013 and a copy of the statement issued by Ms.Roshan Aboosally – Trustee of the Dafthar Jailani Mohiyadeen Masjid-Kuragala, Thanjatenne, Balangoda, and some photographs which are self explanatory.

As you are well aware that the Dafthar Jailani Mohiyadeen Masjid-Kuragala is one of the oldest places of worship for the Muslims of Sri Lanka. This place is facing a severe threat from some hard line Buddhists Who want to destroy the heritage site. On my previous letter I brought this matter to your notice, but since there is no action from Your Excellencies government. Now the Holy place has been demolished under the guise of archeological excavation. According to the statement issued by the trustee this has been done despite the assurance given to Muslim worshippers by the Secretary of Defense.

Sometimes back I brought to your notice that some hard line elements are trying to attack the Dambulla mosque and create chaos among the communities, even before that incident took place, but regretfully that time also no action was taken by the government. This time too  have brought this matter to your notice almost one month before, but again no action is taken.

There is no doubt, that continuing these type of activities only proves that there is no  respect to the sentiments and feelings of the Muslim community which will badly damage the reconciliation efforts by your government to create a peaceful environment.

It has also been bought to our notice that a stone inscription dating back to Hijra 300 (over 1200 years old) been Destroyed. Also the Bodu Bala Sena has threatened to bring a statue on the 18th of this month from Colombo in a vehicle parade and place it there.  I would be much thankful to you, if you would give priority to this matter in your busy schedule and intervene to stop causing any further damage to this Holy place of worship.

Thanking you

Yours faithfully

Your Excellency

This is to draw your kind attention towards the tragedy that is unfolding in Kuragala Dafther Jailani Mohiyaddeen Masjid which is situated in Balangoda which comes under Ratnapura District. This mosque is one of the oldest places of worship and a heritage site for Muslims in Sri Lanka. According to trustees of the above mosque, religious ceremonies are conducted here for more than 124 years. Now this mosque is facing threats of destroying by some hard line Buddhist elements, unfortunately which are believed to be functioning with the full support of the Government of Sri Lanka. Already some structures of the existing buildings of these premises are demolished under the guise of archeological excavations. This action is very much similar to the one carried out by the Zionists in the Holy land of Palestine.

I would like to remind Your Excellency that very recently you had a meeting with His Excellency Mahinda Rajapakse, President of Sri Lanka. It was in news that President Mahinda Rajapakse gave an assurance during this meeting that he will not allow anyone to do any harm to the Muslims of Sri Lanka and their religious and cultural rights and heritages and it will be safe guarded. I can remember it was in the same news that the President requested the Muslim diplomatic community in Sri Lanka, if anything happened to the Muslim Community to inform him on time to take severe action against those involved.

But now things are happening totally against to the assurance given by the President to the Muslim Countries representatives.

Herewith I am enclosing copies of letters written to the President by me and Hon. S. Alavi Moulana the governor of the Western Province and a statement issued by the trustee of the above mosque on this subject and some photographs to prove the present situation of this Holy site.

I would be much thankful to you, if you would kindly use your good office with the President of Sri Lanka and bring this matter to his notice on an urgent basis, and help the Muslims of this country to safeguard their historical religious site.

Thanking You

Yours faithfully

 

M. Azath Salley

    Both sides are idiots. What are you attempting to say by trying to justify whether its a Muslim or Sinhala Buddist site?

    Regardless of what it is or was there first, what matters is now! it’s a place of worship.
    Why can’t we all the just get along? Tolerate each ones religion and live in harmony? Instead of hating each other, work together to achieve greatness and prosper?

    I was reminded by a Buddhist friend of mine and he said there is something called “ditta dhamma vedaniya karmaya” in Buddhism.

    He says that true Buddhists who believe in ditta dhamma vedaniya karmaya would not resort to the things that are being done in the name of Buddhism at Kuragala.

    While I am saddened by what is happening in our country if this is what Buddhists want and if “Kuragala” is what defines them so be it. If they so wish let the continue to believe in the illusion that Buddhism can be protected by destroying other religions.

    Let the Buddhist explain to the world why Tamils, Muslims and Christians in this country should not be allowed to live with self respect and dignity.

    In the meantime, I along with many Muslims can take the moral high ground, and stand tall, for we are not the ones braying for blood.

    Azath Salley’s letter has received comments varying opinions. None were based on archaeological and historical research. Only one comment is based on a book (“Ceylon Vagabond” authored by the late Lala Adithya. To my knowledge he was the Architectural Consultant to conservation of Alahana Parivena in Polonnaruwa under UNESCO-Sri Lanka Cultural Triangle Project. He was an Anglican Christian but his last request was said to be a burial according to Buddhist rites.)

    May be that the Muslims chased out of coastal belt by the Portuguese settled there or the place may been abandoned sometime in the history making it a no man’s land suitable for meditation. I am not an Archaeologist nor a historian. There are enough Buddhist, Christian, Hindu and Islamic Archaeologists and Historians in Sri Lanka. My appeal to them is to get together and prepare a comprehensive report. Accusing Muslims and Buddhists in foul language publicly in a web based very popular newspaper like CT allows the rest of the world to believe that people living in Sri Lanka are an uneducated lot and make opinion based on hearsay. BBS is no exception.

    muslims also srilankan citizens.When a srilankan community claiming
    that it is a sacred place what the need and right the archaeological commissioner have as a civil servant to bulldoze it .if you have any
    doubt in the history or background information clear, it by proper
    research.doing not so, shows some hidden agenda is there.(if you people who tells that it is brahmi read it 1st)
    however the existence of a muslim religeon related site at this place
    have been documented since 1850 by the westerners (an outsider).possibly it may be the tomb side of moullana a south Indian Islamist scholar.But
    about 1200 yr old history I don’t know whether there are any any evidence to proof it.
    Destroying the Archaeological evidence of other communities and by that
    suppress the real history and to claim that this country is ONLY BELONG
    TO SINHALESE is not new for this country’s archaeologist. Mr.Paranavithana was an expert in that kind of false archaeology .
    That’s why his disciples are reacting this way.
    One kind request , don’t blame religions. The false doers are the followers not Lord Buddha or Nabi nayagam .

      This country belongs to Jains, Hindus (Tamils or Dravidians) and Veddas. When Asoka’s son Mahinda came people here were following Hinduism and Jainism. He converted them into Buddhists. Probably this was the Mass conversion in the history of Sri Lanka. This is the true history.

    Kuragala is a vast Buddhist monastery complex 18 km’s off Balangoda on the Kaltota road. This complex covers number of rock outcrops which is collectively known as Kuragala. The ruins of the complex dates back to the 2 BC and has been declared a archaeological reserve by the the government. The Monastery covers 30-40 rock caves, some capable of holding 2000-3000 people.

    Please see the magnitude of vandalism caused to the Buddhist artifacts

    Kuragala is a Buddhist place. That is known history. Please don’t change the history of our country. I been a Muslim am against this. Muslims had no such historic places in Sri Lanka since they migrated to the island around 400 years ago. So cannot have any such 1200 year old historic place. On the other hand look at the stone staircase. This is very common for all Buddhist temples, built on rocks. Muslims never had this sort of architecture. This place was later captured by Muslims and attempted to convert it to an Ismail’s place. Like they (we of course) did all around the world. like in Mecca, where there we have the foot print of lord Buddha, now it has been called as so-called Adam’s Foot print.

    This is not fare. Just because Sinhalese was kind enough to let us live in their county peacefully we should not try to destroy their history. The fake god cannot be justified against a true religion. Keep this in mind, my Muslim friends in Sri Lanka
    is this guys mad or what? who wrote this article. loard buddha foot prints in mecca ?

    In all a little more than 80 years of my life I have perhaps visited the Daftar Jailani site at Kuragala in the Balangoda area during my teen years just twice. knew it then as a quiet place away from it all, a place of peace and meditation. I have never heard it mentioned by anyone at all wom I knew as place of any significance to Buddhists.Even if it had, it would not have made a difference to me except perhaps to add to its sanctity as a place of peace. But what now ? It is all confusion from what I read in these comments which appear to be a lessons in the history of Buddhist and Islamic viewpoints relating to this remote haven of peace. Let Muslims make a place in their hearts for Buddhists and the Buddhists likewise a place in their hearts for Muslims and bring to an ened this ugliest of episodes in the history of our blessed land.

    AS A MUSLIM I DO NOT SAY THAT THIS SITE IS SACRED TO MUSLIMS.EVERYTHING IS BASED ON LEGEND.

    WHAT REALLY BOTHERS ME IS HOW THE ABOOSALLYS CONTROLLED THIS PLACE,IF
    IT IS HOLY BUDDHIST SITE.UNLESS ABOOSALLY WAS A BUDDHIST AND LATER CONVERTED TO ISLAM.

    AFTER ALL THIS DEBATE BOTH MUSLIMS AND SINHALESE HAVE FAILED TO PROVE
    IT BELONGS TO THEM,

    SO SHALL WE WIND UP THIS DEBATE.

    AND LIVE IN PEACE.

    GO and see how many Buddhist sites were destroyed and being destroyed by Muslim fundamentalists in eastern part of Sri lanka. Thousands of Buddhist sites are still being destroyed. Why you do not take photoes of them talk about them. Do you think only Muslim sites are to be protected? What the logic of destroying early Buddhist history by replacing Muslim later history? I do not find any logic there. Here all these people look like worries are anti-buddhists and spectators of destruction of Buddhism.

      Correct. Give the Taliban and their followers 24 hours in Sri Lanka, there will no Buddhist statue or temple left on the island. Look at Saudi Arabia if you don’t believe it. It is called Sharia Law .

      there is only one truth and that is based on fact. Just because you say that Muslims are destroying Ancient Buddhist Temples it does not become fact.

      I wonder why the government which used the draconian PTA to arrest Sally, demurs when it comes to destroying Ancient Buddhist Temples?

    Which is the truth?
    ======================
    Hindrance not for Jailaani mosque. Defense Secretary ensure
    Defense Secretary Gottabaya Rajapaske ensured the safety of Balangoda, Kadaragala, Jailaani mosque and the Muslims to conduct their religious worships.

    He said, government does not have any intension to demolish the mosque or to prevent the religious worships carried out by the Muslims. He said, people should not believe rumors.

    Peace should be maintained amidst ethnics, and everyone’s responsibility is to preserve and protect the sacred area which contains high priority archaeological values.

    Meanwhile he said, he had directed the Commissioner of Archaeology Department to appoint a special independent commission to examine concerning the maintenance of the national legacy without any disruptions.

    @ The Idiot who copy pasted this blindly-

    Allah may even pardon those who forced their slave girls to sell their bodies.
    Slavery existed in every society of the past and at a time of dark ages all Islam did was curbed the practice for that moment until it fully banned,the practice-Quran contains subjects of past,present & future.(I given give you in dozens texts of sexual slavery among other religions and cultures some even today practiced as divine-but as a practice I try my best not to drag religions or degrade it in the above manner ,besides how to stoop to is level.

    being contextual is a tolerated agitation today in journalism, being hateful towards a religion or race is considered a mental disorder to be considered as Schizophrenia disorder, being ignorant is excusable-

    but what to do you call idiots like the ones who copy paste verses like the above and understood the final meaning right opposite to what it says ??????????

    Well you refer to such idiots as suffering from Genetically acquired permanental Mental Retardation ..
    ==================================================
    BTW -CT how come people bashing religion which has nothing to do with race which is the whole debate is about has become very relevant when it is all about bashing Islam, while the slightest variation of my comments were mercilessly deleted and strictly warned..

    CT are you trying to say here that any bashing on Islam not other religions are relevant and well accommodated?
    ====================================
    you should have removed all degrading remarks on the religion Islam , whilst the whole debate was about ethnicity and ethnicity do not represent any religion or its scriptures,with all your professionalism in journalism right from the beginning you have blundered -your writer’s heading says Muslim which means someone who follows the religion of Islam ,he can belong to any ethnicity ,moor.malay,borah,many more ,,, then he says the Sri Lankan Muslims were low cast Hindus who converted to Islam ,, is he referring to all the Muslims? because when you use the word Muslims all races who follow Islam comes under the same umbrella- you should have corrected it from the beginning- is he referring to Malays? a lot of Malays also speak Tamil very well ,so does Borahs,so does memons ,so does Coast Moors and then the Moors? CT Please clarify.
    Thank you
    Happy Friday!

    I may be too late in joining this blog. So it looks there has been an old controversy about Makkama -Siva’s linga, Vishnu’s foot print and Buddha’s foot print(Siri-pada). Yes there was a low level controversy in Sri Lanka too in the 19th and early 20th century about Muslim-Buddhist issues. There was no Internet or Face Book then. My aunt used to recite this poem which pointed to this controversy. It probably came from a Islamic source.

    “Makkama siri pa tamburu; “e-ka patta-pal boru”; okkoma hamuduru waru; niruwaneta yema boru.”
    The second line mmay be distorted.Anyone who knows the poem right?
    Ha, haa, Ha!
    My aunt may have not have understood its meaning and kept on repeating it. That shows how PR had succeeded in our villages even then though it had been recited by the old itinerant Muslim who came to sell “Wadamal Thalaya”‘a behet-tel the villagers could not do without. My family it seems sold another Behet-tel called Balimulla’s tel.(Walimulla?)
    There was a Makkam in Siri Lanka too called Attala-Makkama north of Puttalama where there was a Buddhist vihara as recorded in Nampota/Vihara Asna.

    Interesting debate. My points are as follows:-
    1 Buddhist philosophy teaches non attachment . That includes non attachment to places ,artefacts ,life etc. . It is not following the enlightened ones philosophy to be so attached to Kuragala
    2. I am not sure what Muslims would say to revere a particular place?
    3. All the literature I have read seem to suggest Kuragala is small rock.
    My Sinhala is pretty poor. However,I think it is Kura gala. Kura because Akura in Sinhala is letter. There are letters on a rock. The mysterious letters have been there for many years I presume. Someone would go a long way to clarify this by radio carbon dating the letters.

    Kuragala site is not belongs to Muslims or Buddhist either anyone. It belongs to nature but with the Sri Lankan history we are coming from Buddhist culture associated background and the place which conflict happened area were using by monks many years back. No one can argue there are some Arabic or any related evidence are there. what muslims only can say just guesses. But, what only can see that native wrote some SELLIPI which related to Buddhist culture. even there is no any evidence islam has writing by sinhala. Its only Arabic.

    By growing Muslims in Kuragala slowly the place convert in to Muslim area and temple captured by muslims. And now saying it belongs to Muslims. Infact that now BODUBALA SANA acts on that way as you can see with pics.
    before you balm buddist people. just realized the fact and figure and see the case.

    So please stop destroying SL history. doesn’t matter what religion you are. Only those are remains our future generation.
